    Is it normal to have more than one instance of svchost.exe under ESS's network connections page?

    Edit: After repairing my network connection(it's wireless to my router), I get a third instance of svchost.exe. It then went back down to two after a bit.

    Check how many are running in Task Manager, I have six entries two for Local Service, three for System and one for Network.

    I have one svchost.exe entry.

    Thanks for the reply bodgy. I have 7 instances of svchost.exe under task manager. Two are for network service, two for local service and the rest are for system. Is it that i have two and therfore have a network connection for each? I have a systray icon for each one.
